Manufacturer: Forest River, Inc.
Forest River is recalling certain model year 2012-2013 Rockwood, Windjammer, Vlite and Flagstaff travel trailers manufactured February 3, 2012, through February 4, 2013. When an affected trailer hits a large bump or pot hole, the trailer tire may contact the bottom of the floor.
As a result, the tire may become damaged and possibly blow out which may cause a loss of control, increasing the risk of a crash.
Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will add a lift kit between the frame and the axle mounting brackets, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in late December 2013. Owners may contact Forest River at 1-574-825-7178.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to Home | Safercar -- National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)
